PDN crash if special SVG in clipboard

Recommended Posts


today i discovered a very interesting fault.. everytime i copy the thumbnail of the irish flag (svg-image) on this page, German Wikipedia-article of Ireland, paint.net crashes, when i create a new image afterwards.. i get a bluescreen (with an error in a ati-driver-dll) even before the dialog appears, where i can set the size of the image.. strangly it doesn't happen if i copy the svg-file of the german flag for example..

is suppose that the error raises if paint.net want to check the size of the image in the clipboard (for setting the values of the size-dialog).. is there anyone who has the same problem?

You're copying a normal png file if you're trying to copy the thumbnail.

Wikimedia platform outputs .png until you actually go to the actual file.

So it aint something SVG related.

And I have no problem copying the thumbnail in IE or Opera and then using it in Paint.NET.
